MISCELLANEOUS. Ample Apology. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
MISCELLANEOUS. Ample Apology. Germans ara not given to doing things by halves. When they study, they do it with thoroughness. Even in their apol ogies they go to the root of the matter. Hero, for example, is a card published by a tailor in thm ''agony column" of a Berlin newspaper. Evidently he believes that an open confession is good for the body as well as for the soul: `"I herewith declare that the journeyman blacksmith, Herr Karl X., is a very hon orable man-most honorable-and I tako this opportunity of withdrawing the most delfaimatory charges I mado against him. elcrr Karl X. has already given me a good thrashing for the said sl:nderous words, hut IlHrr Scheidsmanltll inforllls me that tlhrr Karl X. will not do so again if I stato in n public newspaper that he is an honI:oable man and lput a th-aler in the poor box."--Youth's Companion.

Proprietor: I know it. but every time that I've made up my mind to cut you down or discharge you, something has reminded me of your wife and little ones at home, and so I just couldn't do it. There, my man, you see I have a heart as well as a head.
The Porter Was Game. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
The Porter Was Game. "On a limited train from Philadelphfa the other day," told a man recently at a dinner, "the heat in the smoking car bo came intolerable. Everybody suffered and fumed till somebody discovered that all the ventilators were shut. Then the por ter was called and ordered to open them. As he was complying a man who looked like a commercial traveler voiced the in dignation we all felt at the fellow's care lessness. "'What d'yo mean?' he said, 'keeping us boxed here in this furnace? You ought to have opened those ventilators long ago. We'll have pneumonia after such a Turk. Ish bath.' "Whereupon the porter turned upon him. "'I want you to nnderstan, sah, you'se no right to tell me what I ought to do, sah. I knows my business, sath, an I don' need no s'gestions from anybody, sanh. I may lose my job for sassin you, sah, but I can't help it, sah.' "He paused a moment for breath, and the drummer, somewhat embarrassed by the tirade, attempted to stemin it. " 'Oh, stop your t...
Romance of Punkin Hellow. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
Romance o Pankin IHollor. The old folks had gone to bed, and Sims and 'Mandy were in the dim little parlor, where burned a slow firo of sizzling hick ory logs in the old fashioned fireplace. The wintry blasts shook the old farmhouse, and the windows rattled, and a puff of smoke now and then camo down the chim ney on a return trip and circled familiarly about the room, but Sime and 'Mandy didn't mind it. They were sitting very close together. Sime, with throbbing heart and faltering tongue, had declared him self, and 'Mandy had listened shyly and with downcast eyes. Slme's arm stole in a casual and appar antly accidental way along the back of her ehair. "And you'll have me, 'Mandy?" "Yes, Sime." It was spoken softly, but Simon heard it, and there was a sound like that of a quart of cold mush colliding violently with the side of a brick house. Then the stalwart young man recovered himself and rose to his feet. "'Mandy," he said, with the assured hearing of a man accustomed to acting w...
HOWEVER WEE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
HOWEVER WEE. However wee the hearts may be, However tiny the beginning, Where there's a soul that seeks a goal There always is a way of winning. However wee those hands may be, Ye rosy lads and pretty lasses. There's something true that they can de On every single day that passes. However wee those feet may be, However long the way before them, Through weal and woo those feet can go When virtue's light is shining o'er them. However wee those lips may be, However weak the childish prattle, Theoe gentle words, like sons of birds, May soothe the wounded in IfUe's battle. However wee those babes may be, What would we ever do without them? The darkest place they light and grace W?Lth Jooe's soft glory ahed about therm. -Jeesle E. Swmpter.

HIGH-CLASS DAIRYING IN GIPPSLAND. A LOCAL EXAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
HIGH-CLASS DAIRYING IN GIPPSLAND. A LOCAL EXAMPLE. Messrs. Potts and Crowe, the Govern ment dairy experts, are greatly impressed with the capabilities of Gippsland for dairying, and during his lecture at the Warragul Shire Hall Mr. Crowe stated that one of the best examples of high class dairying to be found in Victoria was that of Ir. G. Hollier, who had a 20 acre farm between Yarragon and Trafal gar, about ten miles from Warragul. The lecturer quoted a number of figures which he had compiled, from which it appeared that for the year 1897 Mr. Hollier's average per cow was £13 Os lid and his average per acre £6 3s 6d for the year. The gallons of milk, lbs. of butter, test, and other interesting details were given, which, through the courtesy of Mr. Crowe, we are enabled to publish in tabulated form. The lecturer said the ligures were re muarkable, and from this examnple many useful lessons could be learnt. If it were only possible to bring the 450,000 cows which Victoria possessed u...
THE MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE. M. ROUGEMONT AND HIS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
THE MODERNH Rb INSO1j CRUUSOE. M. ROUGEMONT AND IIIS STORY.. The following, from the "Westminster Gazette," shows how fully MI. Rouge mont has "caught on " not only in Eng land, but on the European Continent: As the sensation of the hour appears' to be that marvellous Frenchman, M.. Louis de Rougemont, whom Mr J. Hen niker-Heaton, M.P., sent along to the editor of the "'Wide World Magazine"' with a letter of introduction, we des patched a special representative to in terview 3I. de Rougemont at the offices of the "Wide World" in Southampton street. Our representative writes as fol lows: "The modern Robinson Crusoe (only his adventures far transcend those of Defoe's immortal hero) is rather belows the medium height, and his face and head instantly attract attention. In deed, so extraordinary and distinctive is the face that it is no wonder people stop him in the street and accost him in the restaurants with the query, 'Are you M. de Rougemont, whose adven tures we have read about?'

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
HERE AND THERE. If there is any special creation I re spect in this world it is a sensible judge of the practical order. Not a judge who is continually airing his fads or finding fault with people who can't answer him, but a judge who talks common sense in such a way that ordinary men can un derstand him. Therefore, metaphori eally, I take off my hat to Judge Casey in acknowledgment of the cxtremely practical lecture he read the other day to one of those careless, troublesome bicyclists who are constantly bringing a harmless and healthy pastime into con tempt and ridicule. The individual in question had ridden down an old weo that he had neither money nor man, and when sued for damages said property to satisfy the claim. And then his Honor took up his parable as fol lows:-"People who have no property have no right to get on top of bicycles and ride down old women. There will be a verdict against you, and I want you to bear in mind when you go out into the streets again that the Brit...
